Default NBME 12 --> 222 - 16 days out.

Hey guys,

I'm freaking out. My score only improved by 8 points in one week. I'm not sure what to do.

NBME 12 seemed the most difficult so far because it had a lot of questions that weren't in FA or UW. None of my 'educated guesses' were correct. I also noticed that I had forgotten some details of things I had read only a week or so ago (i.e., biochem enzymes, etc.). This is after I memorized each pathway, wrote it down, quizzed myself, etc.

I really wanted to score in the 240s, but will settle for upper 230s.

Any advice? I was thinking about just going through FA and putting special emphasis in weak areas + do 2 blocks of UW random timed every day + do other NBMEs?
